Imphal: Manipur government continues to take stringent action against government employees violating the rules and renting out their allotted government quarters to other families. On Tuesday, five more police personnel, including one woman constable, were suspended from their services after they were found subletting the government quarters allotted to them.

The suspended police personnel have been identified as Mutum Romen Singh of Heingang police station, Mangvung Hatkholam Haokip, a woman constable of B Company at 9th India Reserve Battalion (IRB) at Khuman Lampak and presently attached with SP Tengnoupal, Ngangom Shantikumar Singh of Bishnupur district police, Pougongrei Gangmei of 6th IRB (Adm-Coy) and Y Priyokumar Singh of Imphal West police station.

The suspended police personnel are prohibited to leave their respective headquarters without taking prior permission from their concerned authorities. Moreover, they will get subsistence allowance as admissible under rules during their suspension period.

According to chief minister N Biren Singh, three more police personnel are under investigation for allegedly subletting their quarters to unauthorised families.

CM Biren Singh also urged the government employees to maintain ethics and serve society with sincerity. Those employees who misused power will face severe consequences, Singh further warned.

Earlier, four other government employees, including one IRB follower, were suspended for subletting their government allotted quarters to unauthorised families.

To streamline proper allotment of government quarters both at district headquarters and in Imphal, the state government has already constituted verification teams at the state level as well as at the district headquarters level for verification or checking of government accommodation or quarters.
